President Donald Trump began his 46-minute speech, reiterating the many allegations that the election was somehow stolen from him, despite the fact that he had so far failed to provide evidence to substantiate such allegations.
According to network calls, Biden convincingly won the election with 306 voters ’college votes. He is working on the transition, and the administration is cooperating with this, despite Trump refusing to agree.
Down Newsweek looks at the key takeaways of Trump’s title.
Still don’t give up
The bottom line is that Trump, despite growing calls for it, clearly doesn’t want to quit yet.
Rumors have arrived about a 2024 run, the poll showed he will be at the forefront of such an offer. Reports based on anonymous sources so far also suggest you can start this on the inauguration day.
No matter what grumbles there are about this: for now, it’s still pushing in 2020.
“In fact, there’s still plenty of time left to prove the right winner of the election, and that’s why we’re fighting,” he said.
Trump largely repeated the points of the past: the statements of poll observers were ruled out, the dead were suggested that the votes were counted, the votes were emptied, and the software malfunctioned.
Such allegations have been largely refuted, and neither the President nor his allies have been able to substantiate such allegations extensively.
Voting dumping, for example, seems to be largely based on how the votes were counted – first the personal ballots, then the mail and longer. There are indications that Trump probably had stronger personal support and then Biden was higher in the mail. This proved to be largely true and explains why Trump seemed to be doing better at first before the votes of the absent were thrown into the equation.
With another signal that Trump is reluctant to admit his defeat, he filed a lawsuit against the Wisconsin Electoral Commission, alleging that “Wisconsin government officials have committed illegal and unconstitutional acts.”
… But “accepts all exact election results”
Amid repeated allegations of fraud and irregularities in which he reached an old, disputed, or refuted land, Trump suggested that when everything is broken down to his satisfaction, he would accept the result.
“I am finally ready to accept all the exact election results and I hope Joe Biden does the same,” he said.
This follows similar remarks in which he said if the Electoral College were to vote for Biden, he would leave the White House.
Although the Trump campaign has been recounting, these have so far shown accurate results. Nor have the lawsuits of his team and allies revealed any frauds or irregularities that could change the outcome of the election.
Newsweek asked the Trump campaign when the president would consider the result accurate.
Dominion is still under fire
Dominion Voting Systems remains one of the main goals of the President’s rhetoric.
He insisted on his claims that there had been a mass exchange of votes, similar to the allegations Sidney Powell, a lawyer summoned by the Trump campaign, from him to Biden.
Such allegations have been disputed. According to a joint statement issued by the Federal Agency for Cyber Security and Infrastructure Security by 2020: “There is no evidence that any voting system has canceled or lost its votes, changed its votes, or been endangered in any way.”
He referred to a tabular error in a Michigan county that he said “nearly 6,000 votes were mistakenly switched from Trump to Biden.”
However, this actually proved to be a tabular problem that is the result of human error – not Dominion or Dominion’s fault.
Newsweek asked the Trump campaign for further comments on Dominion and the president pursuing this point.
Georgia’s runaway integrity debate
Trump voters questioned why they should vote in the Georgian Senate’s run-down elections, reiterating the voting demands he made to lose their desire to do so.
And while Trump has to travel to Georgia to support Republicans leaving there, Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, once again questioned the integrity of the vote there.
“David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are two huge people. Unfortunately, the same terrible Dominion system is used in Georgia, and it turns out that hundreds of thousands are thinking about it, hundreds of thousands have been asked for missing ballots. You see who is asking for these ballots.”
However, he underestimated the impact of such issues as only “one state.”
“The difference is that it’s a state, and we’re going to look at it like no one’s ever looked at anything because we have to win those two Senate seats,” he said.
Senators have tried to establish a democratic dominance in the legislature as a firewall, with the possibility that control is needed in the Senate if both seats are won because the split and the vice president have a tie vote.
Even if that argument were waterproof, it would mean full acceptance of Trump’s defeat – as if he thought he had won, he would think he would keep the White House, and even in a tie, Vice President Mike Pence will decide a vote.
He was criticized by public opinion polls
Trump continued his attack on pollsters, a common target during his time in the White House.
“It is statistically impossible that the person who led the indictment was lost,” Trump said, citing Republicans ’results in congressional races.
“The biggest polls, the real pollsters, aren’t the ones who dropped 17 points in Wisconsin when we actually won, or the ones that scored four or five points in Florida and we won a lot of points, or we even were down in Texas. and we have won a lot, not those pollsters, but real pollsters, ”he said. He did not specify who he meant by “true pollsters.”
Wisconsin was called upon to Biden, despite claiming Trump’s victory.
While public opinion polls that signaled some landslide state victories for Biden did not prove to be correct, and other battlefields, such as Wisconsin, were more stringent than predicted, overall the picture painted by pollsters faded.
“Overall, pre-election polls in the U.S. have highlighted the high probability that Democrat Joe Biden will take over several states that Hillary Clinton lost in 2016, gaining a popular and electoral majority over the Republican president. Donald Trump. It really did come true, “the Pew Research Center said in an analysis.
According to FiveThirtyEight Nate Silver’s analysis, although there were states that were “quite far away,” overall, the narrative articulated by the pre-election polls eventually materialized.
“This year was definitely a little weird, given that the margins in turnouts were often quite far from polls (including some high-profile examples like Wisconsin and Florida,” he wrote).
“At the same time, most states (probably 48 out of 50) have been called ‘right,’ as have the Electoral College and the winner of referendums (Biden). And that’s how public opinion polls are generally judged: the right winner?”
He also suggested that the margin of error in national and swing state polls is “quite normal by historical standards.”
Newsweek asked the Trump campaign to comment on the poll and what pollsters the president referred to.
